Fieldtown figures: Foot up (and down), Chorus, Half gyp, Chorus, Back-to-back, Chorus, Rounds (and back), Chorus

Stepping is DS, DS, 4 stepbacks (hankies cross front and back), dance to your partner, galley (2x)

Thus each figure includes a dance-to-your-partner and a galley at the end of each HALF figure: Dance to partner = Face partner, double step in place (2x), Galley (generally first half Left, second Right)

Rounds is halfway and back - meet middle, back into corner’s place, dance to partner and galley, reverse

Distinctive Figure (Chorus): SS in place crossing over right foot (4x), then left foot (2x), Foot-together-jump; half hey (repeat all)
